David Cage’s Next Game Is Coming in May
Detroit: Become Human, a story-focused cyberpunk game set in futuristic Detroit, is coming out on May 25th. David Cage, the founder of the game’s developer Quantic Dream, announced the release date on Thursday.
“In a dystopian vision of our near future, Detroit is the story of three androids, three machines designed to obey, who start to feel emotions. Confronted with persecution and the violence of society, they will all have to decide who they want to be,” Cage explained in the news post that announced the release date.
Cage described Detroit: Become Human as Quantic Dream’s “most ambitious title ever created”.
“Your actions have real and spectacular consequences,” Cage said, “there are entire scenes that you can see or miss based on your actions, your closest allies may help you until the end or die just after you meet them, your destiny itself can be totally different depending on your choices. You must also be very careful with your three main characters, because any of them may die at any time.”
Cage went on to say that all the choices players will make in the game will matter significantly no matter how minor those choices seem to be. He also explained that the game’s main themes center on the role of A.I. and technology in the world and “what it means to be human”.
“We hope you see Detroit as a unique experience that echoes some of the challenges our world faces, and maybe it even resonates with your own personal life,” Cage said. “More than anything, we hope that Detroit will leave an impression on you, and that you will remember for a long time the story of these three androids who wanted to be free.”
